One about music

A little bit of a different post today. As I was sitting in front of my laptop thinking about what post to put up, I realised that I've been listening to the same songs over and over again, so I decided to make that my post, the songs I've been obsessing over lately...

My love for musicals is openly professed, and lately I keep coming back to this: With a little help from my friends, from Across the Universe (mandatory movie if you love the Beatles, or if like me, you simply love musicals)

The Vaccines is one of my favourite bands, ever (I think only beaten by Queen in the soundtrack that is my life) and while I love Justin Young's voice, I've been obsessing over Blow your mind, sang by bass player, Arni Hjorvar.

I only discovered Paolo Nutini recently, but ever since I did, I can't stop playing this song, Funk my life up.

What can I say, I'm a lover of old fashion voices, and there's no topping Ray Charles in that department, specially this song: Unchain my heart (which, if you like, I recommend also the cover by Hugh Laurie)

Another band I really like is FUN. (who are most known for We are young) but one of my favourite songs from them is, hands down, Carry On.

Arctic Monkeys' my best friend's favourite band, but I've never quite got the hang of them, up until their last album, AM, much more up my street. This particular song is Why'd you only call me when you're high.

Not gonna lie, not a big HAIM fan, but I've been quite loving their cover of Miley Cyrus' Wrecking ball (who I don't really like either).

Last but most definitely not least is Franz Ferdinand's Evil Eye, song that I do not get tired of, to the point of making it my ring tone.

Hope you like this tracks, and please do recommend any you've been obsessing over!



  1. Music is my soul and it kicks me right back into a great mood instantly. Oh yeah, love Fun too. Great band.

  2. I love Fun. I was just wondering the other day when a new album will be released by them--but I'm so out of touch with what's on the radio these days, it could be out already and I wouldn't know!

  3. aw love it! the first song from across the universe is so fun! across the universe is one of my favorite movies... and the main reason i fell in love with jim sturgess, as an actor. also, good call with including the arctic monkeys :)
